Topic: The Boba Fett Collection--Kubrick Figures by Medicom
I was doing a search today for some Boba Fett Kubricks and happened upon many discussions about a new set of Kubrick's coming out in June 2009 by Medicom titled the Boba Fett Collection. This was the first I'd heard of this, so after looking at several sites I found the most in depth description of them on a collector's site called the Bantha Skull, of all things. How appropriate (even though the Mandalorian symbol is not actually a Bantha's skull, but commonly and mistakenly called that, even by members of LucasFilm's merchandising team. But that is a discussion for a different board).
All of these are new figures and they look very, very nice. It hasn't been said yet, that I could find, whether they'll be in boxes or carded like some of the other special series of Kubrick figures Medicom has released in the past. They will be sold separately, though, and not as an entire collector's pack. That will make getting just the ones you want easier. Although, they still might be as expensive to buy as previous Fett Kubricks.
Also, later in the year, a Jango/ Boba Fett Kubrick 2-pack from Episode II. This will have Jango in his pilot's headgear and the younger version of Boba Fett, as seen in Attack of the Clones.
Originally, there were only four other versions of Boba Fett Kubrick figures, not counting the 400% size larger Kubrick figures, which also have the same variations as the smaller ones below.
Medicom had also previously released a "Droids" version of a Boba Fett Kubrick figure, however, the newer version listed above seems to be based more off of the original Droids artwork.
And, last but not least, we can't forget about the Jango Fett Kubrick that was released last year in a pack and later boxed individually.
Finding some of the older Fett Kubricks is still a challenge. Most of the variants are way too overpriced for my taste, so I'm still trying to find a cheaper one on eBay. So far, the Jango Fett and Empire version (common version) of Boba Fett are the easiest and cheapest ones to get anywhere. Hopefully, the new releases this summer won't be near as hard to find for a decent price.
